this has been my friend's dilemna since she wants a beach-themed wedding but they can't have it in the beach...
but they did stick to it.
their cake had that beach appeal. from the shell shaped white chocolate to the sand where the cake sits. It had brought the sand in indeed!
What's more is that she got this at a bargain. more than half the price of the regular wedding cakes of its kind. Her secret... she got a new pastry chef on the block.
She told me that it was the first thing that she checked in her reception venue right after church. being the OC bride that she is... she was indeed satisfied with every centavo spent on her wedding cake.
I will b posting other budget ideas from her...
for starters - she got her flowers at under 3 thousand, her invites & souvenirs were DIY which made her save a lot.
